I Mailed A Letter Today

I Mailed A Letter Today I mailed a letter today, I wrote it just for you. The words were traced with gray-green ink, It’s still my favorite hue. I pasted in a poem, The kind I knew you’d save. Full of loss and hope and bitter tears, And the love he wished he gave. I … Continue reading I Mailed A Letter Today

If I Were A Pilot

If I were a pilot, I’d fly so very far. Probably to Malaysia, Or maybe Zanzibar. I’d take my plane above the clouds, As high as we could soar. Then drop down low so we could see, That strange and distant shore. I’d fly us to a jungle, And land among the trees, So we … Continue reading If I Were A Pilot

Perfectly Imperfect

I’m perfectly imperfect,And by that I mean to say,I’ve got a lovely golden star,For my awesome, faulty day.I gave myself a dozen points,And a silver crescent moon.For eating all my breakfast,And cleaning up my room.My dishes aren’t clean today,But I don’t feel so bad.My laundry’s in the washer,So I guess I’m pretty rad.I even called … Continue reading Perfectly Imperfect

Cluttered Life

Welcome to my cluttered life,Won’t you stay a while.There’s space between my endless tasks,My planner and my file.Welcome to my cluttered life,Ignore that pile of dreams.I’ll move aside the heap of goals,That’s tearing at my seams.Welcome to my cluttered life,I wish that you could stay.We’d have some tea and cakes and laughs,And in the sunshine … Continue reading Cluttered Life

A Dozen Little Failures

I have a dozen failures,Every one of them is mine.Like a dozen little ducklings,Spread out in a line.They follow me throughout my life,They never miss a beat.A dozen little failures,Gathered all around my feet.Didn’t wash the dog today,Forgot to feed the fish,Called my mom an hour late,And broke another dish.I have a dozen failures,They always … Continue reading A Dozen Little Failures
